Monday Mornings is an American medical drama television series that ran on TNT from February 4 to April 8, 2013 and aired Mondays after Dallas.[1] It is based on a novel of the same name by Sanjay Gupta. In May 2012, TNT placed a ten-episode order for the series.[2]

On May 10, 2013, Monday Mornings was canceled by TNT after one season.[3]


The series follows the professional and personal lives of five doctors at the fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The series title refers to the weekly peer-reviewed conferences held on Monday mornings, at which the surgeons receive both praise for their accomplishments and lambasting for their mistakes, usually from the sharp-tongued and often sarcastic Dr. Hooten.
